A thoroughly enjoyable work filled with half shrouded legends from the Norse mythology--If you know where to look-- a trifle repetitive and rather long, yet a vivid and splendid account of northern folk songs woven into a readable verse.Was this review helpful?

The Finnish Mythology is definetely not the most famous of the Mytholgies. Most have heard of Greco-Roman and Norse, yet few have gone beyond that. The Kalevala is well worth anyones time who enjoys mythology, and great poetry. This tranlation has a great flow to it that makes this edition highly entertaing, and readable.Was this review helpful?
